Two new budget shooters from Fujifilm

Fujifilm just announced the FinePix J10 and J50, two new budget snapshot cameras.

Fujifilm FinePix J10

Along with the several pricey, high-end cameras it unveiled today, Fujifilm announced two new budget-priced, ultracompact models. The FinePix J10 and the J50, two new sub-$200 shooters, are aimed squarely at more frugal users.

Though both cameras feature 8-megapixel sensors, they otherwise offer very different features. The ultraslim J10 measures three quarters of an inch at its thinnest part, and uses a 38 to 113mm-equivalent, f/2.8-5.2 3x zoom lens, and a 2.5-inch LCD screen. The J50 measures 0.9 inch across, but includes a 37 to 185mm-equivalent, f/3.2-5.2 5x zoom lens, and a 2.7-inch screen. Curiously, though both cameras include movie modes, only the J10 can record VGA (640x480) video; the J50 can only record QVGA (320x240) footage, a strange limitation when the J10 and most current digital snapshot cameras can record VGA movies. Both cameras feature combination xD/SD slots that can accept xD, SD, and SDHC memory cards.

The Fujifilm FinePix J10 will be available in silver and black versions and will retail for $150. The FinePix J50 will comes in silver and will retail for $180. Both cameras ship in March.
